1
Satisfyer Pro 2 Rechargeable Female Sensual Stimulator
Amazon
Sex-pert review: "This little buddy does for a woman what a good BJ does for a guy -- and maybe even more! Not only does it provide vibration to the clitoris, which is the most reliable way to reach orgasm for most women, but it also fits over the clitoris in order to provide a bit of suction at the same time, which enhances the sensation. The only thing it can't do is cuddle afterwards -- otherwise it'd be ." -- Madeleine Castellanos, a sex therapist and the author of Price:$48.00

Intimate Melody MAGE Vibrating Massager Portable Vibrator
Amazon
Sex-pert review: "If you want a device that can keep up with you, I recommend the Intimate Melody 3-in-1 vibrator. It includes three different personal massagers and an option to add some heat (which feels more like the real thing). With all the different features and vibrational patterns, this device is a great option for variety. You'll never be bored!" -- Shannon Chavez, a psychologist and sex therapist in Los Angeles, CaliforniaPrice:$28.99

Hitachi Magic Wand Massager
Amazon
Sex-pert review: "This one is meant mostly for clitoral stimulation. If the vibration it is too strong, use a towel or put a sock or two over the toy. It's my go-to recommendation for women clients." -- Keeley Rankin, a sex therapist in San Francisco, CaliforniaPrice:$59.99
4
Lelo Ora 2
Amazon
Sex-pert review: "I strongly recommend Lelo's Ora 2, the world's only oral sex simulator. The tongue is mightier than the sword and if there isn't an actual tongue on hand, then Ora 2 is the next best thing. It transmits sensations amazingly. Viva la vulva!" -- Ian Kerner, psychotherapist and author of Price:$164.98
5
Fun Factory Smartballs Duo
Amazon
Sex-pert review:"No toy can provide the benefits of affectionate human touch, but there is one tool that can make both partnered and solo sex even more pleasurable: Smart Balls by Fun Factory. These weighted balls are worn in the vagina, either during arousing play or as you go about your day. By stimulating and toning the vaginal area, you can create more pleasurable sensations and stronger orgasms." -- Chris Maxwell Rose, a sex educator and the creator of the Pleasure Mechanics online coursesPrice:$29.99

LELO Soraya Vibrator
Amazon
Sex-pert review: "Many women need both clitoral and G-spot stimulation simultaneously to reach orgasm, and my favorite toy that does both while looking pretty is the Soraya by Lelo. What I also love about the Soraya is the loop because it makes the product easier to handle. It gives you more control over your sensual experience and is less bulky during partner play.” -- Anne Ridley, a sexologist and psychotherapist in Sante Fe, New MexicoPrice:$170.91

njoy 11 The Perfect Eleven
Amazon
Sex-pert review:"This is a stainless steel toy that warms to body temperature and can be warmed in hot water. It's shaped to be held in the hand or held by a partner and it is absolutely amazing for G-spot stimulation. It's a bit on the pricey side but built to last and worth every penny. It's like the must-have designer handbag of sex toys. I love mine." -- Elizabeth McGrath, a sex therapist in the Bay AreaPrice:$199.88

Womanizer W500 Deluxe Vibrator
Amazon
Sex-pert review:"Since the introduction of the famous Rabbit, there is now a strong line of vibrators that target the clitoris the G-spot. Brands like Womanizer have taken chic design and innovative vibration and suction to new levels. I'd recommend going to a few sex shops so you can look and handle what is out there before making your selection!" -- Ursula Ofman, a psychologist and sex therapist in New York CityPrice:$140.00

Fun Factory Delight Personal Massager
Amazon
Sex-pert review: "If you want more than just clitoral stimulation, U and S shaped dual action vibrators are the way to go. They're more curvy (and sexy looking) apparatuses: The smooth front slides into your vagina to stimulate the G-spot, and then rigged, it curves to hugs the vulva and clitoris. You then proceed to rock, hands-free. A few different companies make this toy but I say kick it up a notch and upgrade to my favorite, the sexy looking Delight by Fun Factory. It's shaped like a snake!" -- Moushumi Ghose, sex therapist and author of Price:$109.99

Njoy Pure Plug
Amazon
Sex-pert review: "The N-Joy Pure Plug is an anal plug that increases intensity and pleasure when you orgasm. It's always a great addition to masturbating. The N-Joy toys are easy to clean and need little lube because they are non-porous and have a great weight to them!" -- Keeley RankinPrice:$54.95
